On spiritual theology: a primer.

Publication Date

Spring 2011

Abstract

The intent of this article is to introduce an evangelical reading audience to the historical discipline of “spiritual theology. ” After offering a history of the development of “spiritual theology ” the article concerns itself with the proper nature of spiritual theology by way of its three sources: Scripture, systematic theology, and church history. Greater attention is given to church history since it is here that evangelicals have proven historically to be least proficient. The article concludes by stating that evangelical scholars need to develop an appropriate ״ hermeneutic of spiritual theology. ”
